That's a bad-ass ride.

Also, I never understood plastering your vehicle with tons of GD-related stuff. Just always seemed like an open invitation for being pulled over.

I only had the Fiddler from BFA on the rear window of the 'Batmobile'. Sleeps at least 2 comfortably not counting the trunk. 28 Gallon tank 18MPG cruising at 80. Still have it.

My '85 Subaru wagon 'POKARND' I put a Good # of stickers (tiger, Obsession but Pleasin', etc.) on the side windows, figuring that by the time a cruiser got beside us there was no concealing the nature of any of the inhabitants. It died of cancer after only a couple of tours. The white Honda next to the Grumman Naval fish van above was the final evolution into stealth touring with only obscure clear stickers on the rear quarter windows. We put 195k on that mostly going to shows. By then ('88 and beyond) it was nearly essential to be incognito. I mean they set up 'Narcotics Inspection Stations' off the interstate after shows in FL in fall '89. If you fell for that kind of thing.

Monte - you are a lucky man Bro. No flaming exit for you buddy! That thing is a true piece of GD history if you hauled your taping gear to/from those shows.
